You can't. It is a part of your credit history and will remain on your credit report.

You don't. Your bankruptcy filing will remain on your credit report for 7 to 10 years depending on if it was a Chapter 7 or 13. It is a notation on your credit report just like any other credit notation.

Your chapter 7 bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for 10 years. The filing of the bankruptcy should come off of your credit report in 2016.

You can't remove it. A bankruptcy stays on your credit report for approximately 10 years. You can't dispute it because it is true that you filed. Hopefully you are building other credit in the meantime.
